In order to celebrate finishing our Tudor Topic, we decided to create a film about Queen Elizabeth I in partnership with Elstree UTC. First, we researched the significant events in Elizabeth’s life. In groups, we shared our research and produced a presentation, based on each significant event. We then presented our research to the rest of the class. Next, we created story mountains, to highlight the important parts of each event. We then used the story mountains, to create story boards to highlight the different scenes we would need.
After we had completed this process, we then invited the college students and teachers, from UTC, who would be helping us to create our blockbuster! They listened to our ideas and helped us visualise how we might be able to convey our ideas.
During filming, we experienced wearing costumes, stage make up and how lighting and camera angles are used to create a scene.
